Astro Boy

Follow!

La storia è ambientata in un mondo futuristico dove i robot convivono con gli esseri umani e la trama è incentrata sulle avventure occorse ad "Astro Boy", un bambino meccanico dai sentimenti e dall'intelligenza umani. Creato dal dottor Tenma (all'epoca capo del ministero della scienza) con le sembianze del proprio figlioletto, rimasto vittima poco prima di un incidente mortale. In quanto sostituto del proprio perduto bambino umano, lo scienziato lo tratta inizialmente con estrema amorevolezza; tuttavia egli si rende ben presto conto che il piccolo robot non può colmare il vuoto prodotto dalla scomparsa del vero figlio, tanto più che Astro non può crescere e diventare grande né tanto meno esprimere opinioni ed idee estetiche.

The Birth of Astro Boy (Japanese)

The first japanese episode. For unexplained reasons, the first two episodes of the Japanese series were edited into one for English language broadcast. Most material omitted related to the birth of Atlas, Astro's brother-nemesis. This made for a confusing situation for English-speaking viewers, as some of these events were alluded to in later episodes.
